The talk will talk about my book project which studies the entwined histories of Black and Indigenous mobilization in Colombia from the 1930s to the present. My book seeks to re-write the history of social movements in Colombia through the ideas and actions of these populations. 

Laura Correa Ochoa is a postdoctoral fellow at the Rice Academy of Fellows. She received her PhD in Latin American and Caribbean History from Harvard University in 2021. She is developing a book manuscript examining the interconnected histories of black and indigenous political mobilization in the 20th and 21st centuries in Colombia. Her work has been supported by various institutions including the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the Afro-Latin American Research Institute (ALARI) and the Mahindra Humanities Center at Harvard University. Her first academic article, “Manuel Zapata Olivella, Racial Politics and Pan-Africanism in Colombia in the 1970s,” is forthcoming in The Americas, July 2022.
